Somehow Firefox is available on ARM by default, but the crash recovery isn’t that awesome.

On my list of things to try is Chrome or Chromium. These links should help me find out if this is possible at all:

google chrome – How to hide the bookmark bar? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/20

So I wondered why on some tabs, the bookmark bar would never disappear:

Chrome’s default new tab page (NTP) always shows a bookmark bar, even if you turn it off for other pages. You can however install browser extensions which replace the NTP, and the replacements do not automatically get the bookmarks bar (but can with some extra programming).

So for instance Google’s Earth View extension does not show bookmarks, whereas Pinterest’s now does.

Thanks deltab for answering this at [WayBack] google chrome – How to hide the bookmark bar? – Super User

“View Image” button in Google Image Search

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/10

Hopefully by now the extensions below still work, as Google removed the “View Image” button in Google Image Search a few years back.

When not: these might help finding an updated method (:

From a while back, but still relevant as the speed of the GMail web-UI still has not improved.
